  • Doesn't do the NBA any harm in letting Sacramento try to save their team. Plus, with the Seattle group having to provide assurances that the arena will be built with two actions yet to be determined, not sure how they can accomplish that to the NBA's satisfaction? Who knows how a lawsuit will go and the Environmental impact statement could have some wrenches to throw into the works.

    Sure sounds like Johnson has a fighting chance. Plus being able to bypass the owner to show the NBA the plan keeps emotions from getting into the works. If I am a Kings fan, I am more hopeful than I was as a Sonics fan with Mayor McCheese and his band of dunderheads.

  • And the plot thickens...

    http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2020139304_arenalawsuitxml.html

    A second lawsuit has been filed to block the city of Seattle and King County from carrying out a plan with the Chris Hansen-led investor group to help finance a $490 million Sodo sports arena.

  • I thought that the current MOU was I-91 compliant? Thats why this is more funny to me than anything.

  • It's is, just the Mariners, the port, and "the citizens with nothing better to do", trying to derail this, something they will all fail miserably at!

  • Hmm notice the timing of this, just at the point in the negotiations where the NBA will start looking at the fall out and benefits of pushing the Seattle proposal of Hansens and the Sacramento investor group thats coming together.

    Sounds like the Mariners want to squash this badly before it gets more media attention and derails the spring traing hoopla. Fear of being upstaged already before the team is even here let alone next season if the deal is approved.

    This suit was filed by the I 91 guy it says but Port authority is involved and who's backing them? Mariners.

  • The Mariners mostly Howard Lincoln is the one's trying to stop this. They don't want more competition for the sports dollar. If two more teams are there to compete with, it means if the M's want to compete locally against successful teams in their own market then they will have to spend the necessary dollars to compete in their division instead of the bargain basement teams they've been trotting out there of late. That is something that Montgomery Burns I mean Lincoln doesn't want to do. Howard is too stupid to see the horrible and permanent PR damage he is doing to the team he runs.

  • There has to be a viable plan for a new arena for the NBA to approve the move. That's what these asswipes are trying to do - throw up a tangle of legal technicalities to hinder the Sonics coming back any way they can.

  • Wow. 525m for 65%? Hansen is not bargain shopping.

    If this is true, it's awesome news for us. I can't help but feel bad for the Sacramento fans, though. Nobody deserves an owner like the Maloofs.

    No idea, mate. Wondered that myself. Just quoting the tweet verbatim. My guess is the intent was something along the lines of "almost a living legend HOF lock". But still! That would be awesome news.

    Awesome indeed if Phil can help these guys get started. I agree with your Peter Vescey translator. Makes sense.

    Sounds like Hansen only pays $340M

    Chris Daniels ‏@ChrisDaniels5
    RT @wojyahoonba: The $525m price is a "valuation" on the total franchise. For 65 percent, Seattle group would pay approximately $340 million

    This a guy that inherited Jordan/Pippen and Shaq/Kobe... let's not get too crazy with the idea that the Zen Master is able to build a Championship Team.

    While it's exciting that we can even talk about actually front-office people, I'm beyond giddy.

  • If Phil Jackson is going to be choosing a coach I would bet my house that your coach would be Brian Shaw.

    That duo almost came to the Blazers last year and it was rumored that Jackson would coach home games and Shaw would coach road games.

    If i'm a Sonics fan i'd be happy about this as I think Shaw is going to be a hell of a coach. I dont think Phil Jackson will be anything special as a GM though (if thats his role).

    He's drafted 3 stars in his time as a GM, one was a gimmie with Durant, but Westbrook, and Harden? Not to mention drafting Ibaka, dudes a beast when it comes to the draft.

  • I hope they start a clean slate with the team. Isiah Thomas is bad. Don't know why he's starting. And jimmer fredette is Adam Morrison 2.0

  • So, I was playing with the trade machine, and I came up with this:

    Marcus Thornton, Jimmer Fredette, and Francisco Garcia go to Memphis

    Rudy Gay gets shipped to the Kings/Sonics

    MAKE IT HAPPEN, LETS GOOOO!

  • Im amazed at the amount of people that will forgive the NBA for what happened here. I was a season ticket holder for many years and have seen more NBA games than any other sport by a mile. What happened was criminal. The NBA is a joke and has been in decline since the early 90's. Gone are all the great personalites, replaced by a bunch of classless punks.

    No thanks. I have not watched a single NBA game since the Supes left and I never will. I will vote with my wallet. The NBA has to be accountable at some point.

    If you havnt watched how do you know its so horrible? I think the NBA is as good and entertaning right now as its been since the prime of Jordan, Pippen, Barkley, etc, etc. Of course there are a few punks but most of the stars are really good, marketable dudes.
